Martello Tower No.24

Martello Tower No.24 plans to re-open in April 2022, observing the Government Covid-19 protocols in force at the time.  Bespoke visits for small groups may be possible before then. Find out more

Martello Tower No. 24 in Dymchurch High Street was one of 74 towers built along built along the south coast of England between 1805 and 1812, to resist the threatened French invasion.

74 Martello Towers were built on the Kent and Sussex coast, with Martello Tower No.24 considered to be the best surviving example, being closest to its original condition and it can be seen as it was when occupied by the military in 1806.

The tower has been restored to its original design and layout with almost all of the original tower still in place. Martello Tower No.24 is only one of 3 of the 74 built that is open to the public.

The tower contains almost all of the features of the original design including brickwork, front and parapet doors, window openings, fireplaces, ventilation shafts, the original 24 pounder muzzle-loading cannon on the gun platform, parapet shot lockers, hauling rings, replica gunpowder barrels, and replica 'Brown Bess' muskets.
